System Plus Consulting is proud to publish the reverse costing report of the BMC050, a 6-Axis electronic compass supplied by Bosch.
Packaged in a LGA-16 pin housing, the device integrates two sensors into a very small space : a triaxial geomagnetic sensor for measuring the Earth's magnetic field and a triaxial acceleration sensor for tilt compensation.
The triaxis magnetometer is manufactured in MEMS thin film technology and uses the new Bosch's FlipCore measurement principle to calculate the direction.
The BMC050 is ideally suited for mobile phones, tablet PCs and notebooks. It features high sensitivity of 0.3 µtesla and low power consumption at 0.54 milliamps. This report provides complete teardown of the E-compass with:
